My New Obsession: Maglev Trains

After Morse Code Radios (which I managed to build, btw, though its functioning is slightly faulty. But, hey! Nobody is perfect!), I’m stanning Maglev Trains. #They’resocoolIwishIlivedinShanghaisoIcanliveinoneofthosebeastsforeverhappilyeverafter. And now I sound nuts (BTW that no space sentence was deliberate on my part so that you’ll understand the intensity of this latest obsession of mine).  Continue reading


I’m building a Radio for myself!!!

Okay, “building” is an exaggeration. But I’m definitely making a Radio from scratch. This is not a School Project. Rather, it’s something I’m doing to pass time during holidays. I dedicated a lot of time to learn the Morse Code last week, and I’m proud to announce that I’ve crossed the Beginner’s Level. Mind you, making a Radio is no child’s play and since I’m a high schooler, I’m taking the help of my Physics Prof to get me a Sounding Board. I went out and brought all these p-n junction diodes and transistors and yadda yadda yadda. My prof had all the terminal names printed on the Board so that makes my job a teeny bit easy. But it’s still work, though definitely not a chore because I’M LOVIN IT and can’t wait to get started for REAL!

Design a Title For The Lone Star In My Constellation

YES! Xiao Li, the author, wants you readers to help her out in designing the title of the book. She would totally love it if any of you write the title ‘The Lone Star In My Constellation’ in Chinese script, mainly because she isn’t that great in calligraphy.

Your calligraphy doesn’t have to be great, but you can simply write the title neatly in Chinese and mail it over to us at .

We’ll be waiting for your photographs. Please do help us out, guys!

Thank You.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Prioritizing Translations.

The Asian Cult regrets to inform you this, but we have decided to postpone updating ‘Playing With Innocence.’ We are currently focusing on ‘The Lone Star In My Constellation’ and will continue to do so until the entire book is done.

We have not taken this decision without thought, because we totally love translating Playing With Innocence, but lack of time and the business in schedule is preventing us from doing so.

We are extremely sorry, but once TLSIMC is done, we’ll try to get back to PWI.

Once again, in the name of the Cult,

ANNOUNCEMENT: New Feature To The Posts!

I have no idea how many of you have already noticed this, but we have started posting ‘SONG OF THE DAY’ on top of all of our translation posts. With a lot of difficulty, we are choosing Asian songs that set the mood for the chapter. For example, if a particular chapter has a lot of sad moments kind of things in it, then we post a song that has a melancholy tune to it.

I hope that you will appreciate this hardwork, because at the Asian Cult, we are aiming to redefine your experience of reading online translations as after research we found that the dual effect of reading and listening an appropriate song enhances the entire experience.

Hoping that you will support in this new endeavor of ours,
